Robinson makes list of Top 50 Public Works Trendsetters


Date: November 23, 2004  

COLLEGE STATION — Roy M. Robinson of the Texas Engineering Extension Service has been named a 2004 Trendsetter by PUBLIC WORKS magazine.

The list, published in the November 2004 issue, recognizes top leaders in the public works community, including those who have defined policy, brought their community or an issue into the spotlight, or set the standard within the industry. The cover story encompassed 50 people and groups who have impacted the public works industry over the past two years.

Robinson, a program coordinator with TEEX’s Engineering, Utilities and Public Works Training Institute, received the 2003 Donald C. Stone Award for Excellence in Education from the American Public Works Association. He coordinates the “Public Works: Preparing for and Responding to Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)/Terrorism” course for the National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center. The management level course is free of charge through funding from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office for Domestic Preparedness and is taught throughout the country.

“We looked for professionals who stand out among their peers by making a national or international impact on the public works sector, thereby influencing the way we do our jobs on a daily basis,” said Bill Palmer, editor-in-chief of PUBLIC WORKS magazine.

The alphabetical list has Robinson at No. 35, one place behind Department of Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge. The full list can be found at 2004 PUBLIC WORKS TRENDSETTERS
